It is located beside the Kennicott Glacier, northeast of Valdez, inside Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. The camp and mines are now a National Historic Landmark District administered by the National Park Service.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

Michigan Central Station (aka Michigan Central Depot or MCS) was built in 1913, after the previous Michigan Central Station burned. The station was built for the Michigan Central Railroad and has been Detroit and Michigan’s passenger rail depot from its opening in 1913 until the cessation of Amtrak service on January 6, 1988. At the time of its construction, it was the tallest rail station in the world.
